Hello guys, tomorrow is the day. I pick up my beauty and start everything. Now I have everything I know I need, even bought "Keeping Childrens Pythons by Greg Fyfe & Darren Green" to have a read etc. All I struggle to understand is what exactly all the different coloured lights do and which...
I have recently watched a video on youtube in which Peter Birch was talking about some Alice Springs Stimsons pythons having keeled/rough scales.
Are there any keepers with this locality/variety in their collection?
Scale description and photos would be greatly appreciated.
Hi all, first post here but I've been reading the site for about 3 months.
I have a Children's Python, about 1 year and 2 months, maybe a little less, and I had a question about his feeding.
He used to eat every week, except for maybe the one or two weeks when coming on to shed, and was...

Its that time of year again when im looking at snagging a new snake at next years Expo- and as of now I've narrowed my list down to a Diamond Python (or perhaps a Jungle, but I'm 100% certain it will be an arboreal species).
Just a few general questions- I would really appreciate any...
Well, it's that time of year again when I'm sure all you guys have got your eggs cooking away in your incubators, and I'm over here jumping up and down waiting for some babies!

So as the topic suggests what's everyone's experience or views on feeding your python foods other than rats or mice.
I was given a couple of baby quail which are slightly larger than a pinky rat. I was thinking I'd offer one soon to my girl but was unsure how it would go or if I should...
A quick question for any stimsoni keepers in QLD, have you recorded the scientific name of species to the subspecies?
eg Antaresia stimsoni stimsoni or Antaresia stimsoni orientalis
Has orientalis been officially recognised?
Same old question! feeding in enclosure or tub ok my boy has only been with me for 2 weeks and he has taken a rat each week but he wont eat if I put him in a tub will refuse it but if I feed him in his log in his cage he takes it but if u make a movement he stops I have put this down to...
Hi all! I am a newbie here at Aussie Pythons and at owning snakes - I got my first Stimson Python juvenile early June and he has been fine ever since.
However, about a week ago I was watching him in the tank and noticed he blew what looked like a snot bubble. I immediately began to suspect an...
I've recently got my R1 licence after 5 years of no reptiles. I'm now getting back into them but since having snakes last we now have a cat. The cat is a smaller cat and other people in the house are worried about larger sized snakes for fear that it will eat her. So to make them...
I'm new to the forums, I currently have a male stimson python about 20 months old (75cm) hes going well my first snake,

so, i know this is probably just me being paranoid that my snake is sick, but i really would like confirmation. ive read that stimson pythons will occasionally go off of their food during the colder months, but is it normal for them to not leave their hide? i got Lacy second hand from a...

I am thinking of getting a stimson python and a childrens python at the up-coming reptile expo in gosford. It'll be a long drive, but worth it as its my first reptile expo. Anyway, i was just wondering if you guys think a 25G tub will be an okay size to keep a childrens python in. Also, any tips...
I am going to the Reptile Expo at Gosford Showground this sunday, and i am strongly considering getting a stimmie hatchling. Just wondering what size tub you'd reccomend to keep it in for its whole life? I figured i'd get the large tub and keep the hatchling in a smaller container inside the...
my stimson python is still going through his first shed (since ive had him) he did shed in one piece and still has some skin just behind his head im assuming his enviroment was humid enough.
anyway i was just wondering how long it takes them to come around and eat again. its probably...
We haven't had a huge argument/debate in a while, what's up with that? Normally there's one every couple of months!

We are in the research phase considering whether to get a snake (possible Stimson) next year, so doing lots of reading and thinking. Consider yourself warned that there are many stupid questions to come ;).
Something I'm wondering now is what kind of interaction you get from your python on a...
Just to start, I really and honestly did try my best to scour the forums for an answer or advice but there was very little on sexing of a Stimsoni, except what I explain here.

Hello all. I recently got my first snake, a fourteen month old SP, and I'm a little confused as to what the correct temperature is supposed to be even with a lot of research . Some caresheets say 34-36 on the hot side but just as many say it should be 31-33.

Nevermind I just read in another post how rare they are, I was looking at a yearling yesterday, adorable! I might have to suss out a childrens instead.
I've been away for about a month visting the states and we managed to pick up some gifts for our lovely snake Whil Wheaton on the road.

I agree with @BredliFreak for the Delmas, and I personally would love to see some more Pygopus. The common scaly-foot, especially with the variety of colours it can be, is gorgeous and would make a very interesting animal to own ("thrives on banana in captivity" -Cogger 2014). Also think...
